Development of a two-photon fluorescent probe for selective detection of β-galactosidase in living cells and tissues

Abstract

Development of a two-photon bioimaging probes for trapping specific enzyme activities in overexpressed tissue is much practical and significant. In this work, we developed a two-photon fluorescent β-gal probe G-GAL which was made of GCTPOC as the fluorescence reporter and a β-galactosidase cleavable crew as the enzyme activity initiator. The purpose of designing this probe is to detect β-galactosidase in living cells and tissues. The probe G-GAL has the advantage of rapid response, great fluorescence enhancement and superior specificity. Further, the probe has excellent tissue penetration.
